In our Samsung AU9000 review, we gave the TV the full five stars, thanks to the sheer quality of its pictures for the price, as well as its sleek and comprehensive smart TV software.
We said "The AU9000 doesn’t take long to impress you. It has some real and unarguable strengths when it comes to picture-making … the colour palette the Samsung can call on impresses both with its extensiveness and its naturalness. Skin-tones are always a stern test of a TV’s abilities, and the AU9000 handles the complexities and subtleties of complexions well, and it also does good work describing textures of skin, too. Colours can be bold and vivid when required, or muted and nuanced if necessary."
